Students of Holy Cross High School conducted several fundraisers throughout the 2014-2015 academic year to support the Little Sisters of the Poor’s mission of caring for the elderly poor at Holy Family Residence in Scranton. The students, who raised an impressive total of $700, presented a check to Sister Maureen, l.s.p., at the Little Sisters’ annual golf tournament on Saturday, June 13.

In addition to conducting their own fundraisers, many Holy Cross students support the Little Sisters’ efforts of caring for God’s eldest children by volunteering their time and talents at the Little Sisters’ fundraisers and activities for the residents throughout the year. The students can often be found working at dinners, playing bingo or spending time one-on-one with the residents..

For more information on supporting the Little Sisters, please contact Mrs. Jackie Galvin, M.S., director of development and communications, at (570) 343-4065 ext. 3144 or scdevelopment@littlesistersofthepoor.org.
